Follow The Leader

Who in your life is a leader? Who do you follow? Today we are inundated with information. Are you selecting what information is coming in to and registering in your brain consciously or by habit? Do you watch or read the news regularly? Ask yourself if it is helping to you accomplish the desires of your heart? Are you taking what you watch or read and revising it to be the ideal? If your not then you are following the conditions and circumstance most likely of what you focus on. That is your leader. Are they going where you want?

Do you feel that the Law is idle while you listen to news or read it? If you do it to relax or to just be current without revising what is coming in at that moment your being lead through their views.

What causes your life?

News and many blogs are written by people who think they and you are at the mercy of conditions and causes outside of themselves. Telling them that Imagining Creates their reality they would scoff, laugh, and ridicule you to no end.

"Imagining Creates Reality? Your delusional!"

There is a story of a fox that tried to reach some grapes even though with all his jumping to get the grapes he couldn't reach them. After many tries he rationalized that they were sour anyway so it was good he didn't get them.

Now the fox could imagine all she wanted and still not become any taller. Right? Of course that usually isn't the nature of nature is it? Yes, nod your head. People assume that if imagining lead to createing reality they would know about it. They take an a view opposite it just like the fox who never tasted the grapes made up that the grapes were sour.

Now with using the law by imagining creates reality - you have infinite possibilities to assemble your desires in and for your life. More than you could ever fathom. If you look around your life and see the physical manifestations that are all around you from your car to your house to your gloves you had a desire to have them and felt, saw, or heard them as part of your world or reality. Now you might have wanted a bigger house or a more compatible spouse and yet you imagined them to be part of your life in some way.

What you received was conditioned by your beliefs about what you deserve, what you think is possible and what is your reality for you. So that bigger house may have been about "what you could afford" instead of the universal law delivering to you the bigger house with that extra bed room.

The most difficult thing is to think, believe, and imagine living outside your current reality without practicing the desire consciously. With practice it gets easier and easier. Many people start reading Neville and get very excited to read about the possibilities that could be for them. They forget to start there own story of imagining creates reality. They want to dare to believe it but scared to try it. You really have to let go of your conditioning and give imagining creates reality as an possibility to actual take imagining events into your physical world. And that requires you becoming a leader of your life.

I was in a group that meet every month for about 12 months and the people were wonderful in this group. I have to say I enjoyed this group more than any other I had attended up to then. As we discussed the popular buzz name for the Law which is the "Law of Attraction" I found that many of the people were enjoying the great energy in the group and many didn't apply this Law to their lives except in a minimal way. Including me.

After about 1 year of meetings I realized that I was enjoying the group even though I was not really applying much of the Law to my life in the way I coulda, shoulda or woulda. Now I can do metaphysical guilt like the best of them. Do you love that idea that you know you coulda, shoulda or woulda be in a different place because we have intellectual knowledge. I laugh now at that notion if I have not emotionalized it. I know I won't have it unless I use my one of senses first or more senses before any physical manifestation it never comes that I have it already.

When you expect something instantly -"Where is it already?" or keep looking for it - its like praying from a place of deep want or yearning. What your focused on is not being there as your reality.

I started looking at many peoples lives who were reading Neville or Universal Laws principles and they weren't really getting the results they wanted. Now I knew that I wasn't to the degree I desired either. In 2005 I really started taking on the idea that applying it was what was needed more than just reading it to feel good. And where do we apply it? In our life and experiences.

My computer business at that time I felt passionless for and I had reached my goal 0f keeping the business alive over 6 years. I loved the people and just got tired of not feeling like what I did mattered long term. I fixed and sold computers. "BIG DEAL!" I thought.

I stop enjoying doing that because it wasn't really what I loved to do. I did many months of soul searching and realized that I need to help people full time to do my mission which was to Help people"Get" that they are more than they believed (including me).

I had been on this journey forever towards finding solutions because I coached many people along the way. I then opened a part time coaching business and started coaching professional. I loved it! It was something that feed my soul totally. I was still struggling with my computer business along with some personal relationship issues and couldn't find a business model that worked well for coaching. I attended a coaching club once a month and the people who were leading that group were full time well paid coaches. The last meeting I attended one of the coaches and I was talking. She told me your really not really focused on being a coach, your more of an entrepreneur. I stop going after that because I took her criticism pretty hard. I stopped pursuing the coaching business I was doing and went and got a job. I really didn't realize she lead me to a conclusion I hadn't nor should I have accepted your reality as greater than mine. I didn't realize that truly I was on the leading edge of what coaches are working on four years later.

Have you ever done that? Let someones opinion run or ruin your life? Their comment destroy your momentum or even your confidence in what you were doing? Who was leading who then? I know this woman I saw as one of the leaders of the group but not really the leader of my current reality. I let her idea destroy my momentum. I went and got a job for 15 months and coached a lot less professionally than I did before just because some person shared her opinion and I bought it hook, line, and stinker!

Every time you chase your desire with one of your senses - your feelings, hearing it, and seeing it before it has happened you step out and lead. You lead you to the belief that Imagining does Create Reality! You step up with what all powerful successful people use - FAITH!

When your family, friends, coworkers look at you and think your "nuts" when you might have mention using intention to create what you desire - you are leading from a place called FAITH!

Faith in your ability to create reality as you desire it! Sure it takes time to condition yourself to believe you do actually create your own reality AND it is worth it as you experiment with your experiences! Try it, you'll like it.

See naysayers are naysayers because they are comfortable to a point of living in their protective reality that others, the world, the government, the friends, the family, the co-workers, the bosses, their dogs, their cats, their cars, the economy all have a say in what they experience.

When you look at what you think is first cause of your life will determine your life.

What is first cause? (See Mastering Neville's Advanced Realization Workshop for more info)

First cause is where you believe the causes in your life come from. What do you believe causes your life to happen in the way that it does. If you believe that the cause of your life lies outside of you then you would be following that cause as your leader. So if a employer changes the retirement plan and you buy into that with your energy then you purchased the state of way of being helpless to that business or another business or government regulation as your leader. Ouch!

In a way where you put your attention towards as the cause of your life is leading you. Why I say in a way is because the power lies within your choice to what gains and captures your attention. Your ability to focus on having your desire already is one of the skills you might want to develop as the leader of you.

When you go cross currents of what people believe you actually step out to be a leader of first yourself and second other who notice what your doing. So even though you are being lead you ultimately decide and choose what captures your interest, attention and what you invest into emotionally. You have the the choice to react or respond to your external world's conditions.

"Blake tells us, “Eternity exists and all things in eternity independent of creation which was an act of mercy. By this you will see that I do not consider either the just or the wicked to be in a supreme state, but to be everyone of them states of the sleep which the soul may fall into in its deadly dreams of good and evil when it leaves paradise following the serpent.”

Now, Blake uses the word “mercy” only as one who sees that states are eternal; that in God’s mercy he created all things, not just a few, so that any situation which can be conceived, already exists in eternity. When Blake said, “Eternity exists and all things in eternity independent of creation which was an act of mercy,” he meant that everything you see is dead, a part of the eternal structure of the universe. You are its operant power. When you enter a scene it becomes animated. Then you become lost in your own animation and think it is independent of your perception. Looking at it, you cannot believe you are causing the animation, but you are.

You and I are living souls, buried in a world of death. We are destined to be life-giving spirits through an act of mercy, but until that time we animate what we perceive. Questioning self, Blake asks: “O miserable man that I am, who will deliver me from this body of death?” May I tell you, no earthly power can do it, only God. "

When you first discover this magically ability you can't stop imagining your next reality as what you desire until you have doubt enter in.

When you doubt that the result you want is actually seeing what your desire is - is lacking - in your life. You have yearning, a empty feeling about this thing you desire to manifest into your physical reality. Unless you come from the place or state that you have it already - you know - received it already; as your own then you can have as much as you can imagine and believe you can have. You can doubt your doubts if you like.

In coaching my clients to create incomes without putting having to physically be there; they have to trust that it is possible. They may not know exactly how yet and they have to step out and have faith.

Faith is simpler than you think. Just think of going to visiting a friend, relative, or a place for a vacation out of the state you live.

What is the process?

You believe you can get there by jet, plane, helicopter, car, bus, train, or transporter. You don't start whining that your not there already so you'll never be. You don't say that destination I don't deserve. That destination is only for the special ones. No you feel free to go there because of your desire alone.

Okay so what is the next step?
Planning, packing, preparing your boss with a slip for time off, and getting someone to mind the store while your away.

You assume that it is possible to make it happen now. You don't say because I haven't been to Alaska that I can never go to California do you? No. You just assume you will make the trip - and you start looking forward to being there physically. Anyone who has driven hundreds of miles they have one place on their mind - the destination. Its almost like they are there already in their mind and the trip is all but done while they are driving. What is your experience?

Okay after you desire and then assume you can have your desire what is the next step? Isn't it accepting you are there. So will have new sights, new smell, new, experiences from when you came from. So you create a new experience in your head about it being different than where you were. That is the manifested reality you accept as yours. Its natural.

Now what? That is it. You have a desire, assume you are there, and then walk as if you are there and the scenery around you will change as if by magic. You are magically then.

Your ability to take your desire and imagine being there and accept you have it, Ta da! The simple formula that will take a life time to master - expect when it doesn't because you now call it easy.

So when you watch the news, read a book, listen to gossip, watch a TV show ask yourself what is this leading me to? What or who is the cause of the story?

Lead yourself to the fulfillment of your desires! You can do it! Because you are the operant power that chooses to be a leader of your reality who leads by imagining the reality that they desire.

Who will lead you today? You?

You are a leader just by imagining something different than your comfort zone. Lead yourself where you want to go! Go for your dreams now!

Imagine well!

Shooting Stars and Causes

I sat there in the forest looking up at the stars through the rental car sun roof. I was just looking at the stars which I haven't done much in 2009 until this particular day.

As I sat and looked to what many call the heavens I saw a shooting star blaze out in all its glory. It was the biggest blaze I had ever seen go across the sky for a shooting star. It seemed to be closer to me than any other star I had seen before. So I got more curious to look further into the immensity of the heavenly stars and look for more stellar phenomenons.

Now thinking I would bring to light what a shooting star was exactly I Googled it. I found that it wasn't a star at all. Ahhhh shucks! I thought I was seeing this grand event instead of what it really is.

From NASA's website this is what they say it is.
"A "falling star" or a "shooting star" has nothing at all to do with a star! These amazing streaks of light you can sometimes see in the night sky are caused by tiny bits of dust and rock called meteoroids falling into the Earth's atmosphere and burning up. The short-lived trail of light the burning meteoroid produces is called a meteor. Meteors are commonly called falling stars or shooting stars. If any part of the meteoroid survives burning up and actually hits the Earth, that remaining bit is then called a meteorite."

Now I am armed with the facts of the truth. I am not sure about you but looking for shooting stars sounds and feels way different than looking for bits of dust and rock hitting the earths atmosphere. Same effect but the idea feels different.

Sometimes facing reality with facts is unpleasant and spoils what we have come to believe and think we know. I had heard that when we see the stars shooting through the sky that the life of a million or maybe a billion year old sun was burning its self out. To be witness to a shooting star before was romantic almost to me. Sharing that moment with a shooting stars last moment of time - seemed to me an almost life giving event and made me feel good. Like the star had shone for its glories 10 billion years and it and I saw the end of it's life.

Now what? Do I think of the last definition from NASA should be mine? And let them define that block of space in my head? Do I rent that space out to them with the facts of what they have stellarly gather over those 40 plus years from their looking at the heavens experience?

Then I saw a wonderful show on called The Universe. It tells how almost all stars actually live even longer and last much longer than even the ten billion years even though they do just change how they shine. Sometimes they die but not often. Now the birth of a star and how it has a constant struggle with gravity I found fascinating and empowering. I don't know how long it will be up but a very interesting show to watch about the birth of the stars and their deaths.

Now I can smile when I see the bits of dust show the sky with light because I now know a bit more of how most stars live a very long long time even after they burn the brightest. Some how that gives me even more pleasure than my previous ideas about stars.

Now when you learn that your imagination is ALL in your world do you find that to be a fact your comfortable with? Do you realize all you think, feel, do, breathe into, have, and that is - is absolutely and squarely within your imagination?

Take a deep breathe for a moment. Ahhh haaa. Breathe...

Can you think of a rose now and not see it in your minds eye and you are the cause that imagined it? You are constantly imagining what car you are driving. As you are in your car you are imagining what you are doing first in your reality. You are constantly registering everything first and foremost in your imagination before it gets to the physical world. In fact it is so quick that sometimes we don't realize there is something in between functioning as the staging ground - if you will - for everything you say, do, feel, think and believe.

Imagination hears the facts from experts and believes and then creates the facts in your physical environment. Imagination through your eyes perceive the way that you do. Imagination sees what your world is as you believe it to be. What a great joy to know that. You are the source of what you see, feel, believe, hear, and know. You. No one else can do these things for you!

How powerful is that? How much freedom do you have to choose your next step no matter what has gone before. Many people rely on their past memory for their confidence or there permission to take the next leap. Forget the past as a part that determines or defines your next moment or future. You are making your life up right now this moment.

What might you say - What are you talking about Gary?

See there has been hundreds of thousands of words that have been spoken to you over your life time. You didn't believe every one did you? Were you a product of every word or only the words you believed and agreed with? You were shaped emotionally by what you thought fit who you believed you were at the time you heard the words. As you changed and learned more about life you stopped believing in things that no longer seemed true to you.

I remember at 12 years old my brother, Brent, 17 years old, came into my room and woke me up. He convinced me in my foggy state that it was Christmas in June and that Santa Clause had brought us all presents. Okay I was gullible - though to defend myself at first I started out resisting his "truth of Christmas in June." I have no idea why I decided to believe him. Maybe no one ever told me lies ( at least that I know of) and I had a tendency to to believe people. Especially my older brother.

Then he had a great joke when I went into the living room and found absolutely no one there. And for a few seconds I suspended my belief enough to believe in a Christmas in June.

Even though there was no Christmas I can use this example to teach you that what you believe is not based on facts. In fact (yes, it's a punny pun-pun) it is based on an emotional desire for pleasure. We tend to justify with our facts but the truth of it is that we usually decide emotionally about what to believe about a person, a religion, a beer, a soda, a diet, a car, a image, a business, and anything that we feel strongly about.

"I tell you, if you want someone to change, you must change your imaginal activity, for it is the one and only cause of your life. And you can believe anything in if you will not accept the facts your senses dictate; for nothing is impossible to imagine, and imagining - persisted in and believed - will create its own reality. Now, all things exist in God, and he exists in you and you exist in him. Your eternal body is the human imagination, and that is God Himself. Your imagination is an actual body in which everything is contained."
BELIEVE IT IN Lecture #132 – Neville 10/06/1969
Neville Lectures to Change Your World Subscription

So not accepting the facts of your senses whether it be shooting stars or the solid furniture in your home. On the quantum level imagining creates the only reality. Your beliefs create the reality you are living in physical life right now. Matter can only be matter as you have had a mental equivalent in mind, heart or head and it sunk into the feeling and vibration you surrounded yourself with inside - then it becomes matter or physical reality. As you make impressions upon the subconscious/spirit/unconscious/divine mind you create new facts. As you allow the reality to take hold within you then you'll find yourself believing more and more in the invisible. Allow patience and space for your creation to be allowed and flourished!

From what was unseen becomes seen! From was the invisible then becomes visible.

So whether it be a belief in what shooting stars are or what they really are - you are much more than you ever dreamed of. NO you are not your body. Your deeper inside. Go look through your physical eyes and look in the mirror to see that deeper intelligence shining brightly out of your mask called a face.

There is a power inside of you that can't be squelched by the dictators of your life. It can't be put out with a bucket of criticism! It can't be taken away ever. You own your power and that power lies within you called imagination. When you use it to let go of what your eyes perceive on the outside - you suspend your self enough to open up all the possibilities inside of you again.

Possibilities that your desires are the I AM desires for you to have, hold, enjoy and move on from as you enter the next state you desire instead.

The more I understand what works in NLP. (Google it) I find that Neville had been teaching it for years and years about going into states. States that are your ideal. States that aren't vulnerable from other peoples opinions of you. States of wealth. States of whatever you desire.

See - you are this creator - or selector of reality. Where ever you look inside you find. Whatever you embrace as yours comes to you like a two ten ton magnets inches a part.

Everything that comes into your life you have called in to it... Pretty powerful aren't you? Don't dismiss it - you really know its true deep down.

A long time ago I took a class called "Connected Breathe" where all you really do is breathe deeply and often. You allowed yourself to have insights into whatever came up for you. The first time I got nothing from it but clear lungs and slight buzz. The second or third time I got the realization that I was pulling all the strings in my life and it was a joke. A joke because I didn't know I was creating "my drama." I didn't know that I was bringing whatever I desired into my world. The joke was that I thought I had NO POWER when I had all the power to create my life exact as I purposefully choose or choose by default.

I started to realize then that I was the master behind the curtain pulling my own strings and I didn't even know it.

If you absolutely knew you had all the power in your life to be anyone you wanted to be, to have anything you wanted to have, to exist exactly like you desire to - would that stop you from complaining, blaming, or politically arranging your life to be safe, comfortable, and in a box?

What if you were the source, the cause, of your life? What if you could right now stop whatever your doing that makes you unhappy and move fast or slowly towards making your life the ultimate fantasy for YOU?

What would your life be like if you let go of fear?

What would happen if you moved towards your dreams - nope not tomorrow - right now. Stop makes excuses - As Wayne Dyer might say "Excuses BE GONE!"

Right now you and I have the power to wake up to the reality we create in our lives through our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and assumptions. If we know that then what can we do to get what we want full out?

How much fun would you have at work if you were exactly who you really are?

Today I want you to think about that you are the cause of your life. Every part of your life.

Now what do you want to make your life? Passionate and fulfilled? Or living in survival state only? Your choice!

I know which one I am using my power in choosing. How about you?

If it's to be, it's up to me!

Great Mantra to use! Maybe you could repeat this saying 200 times a day until you realize you are the operant power in your life! That's right you!

Happy, Healthy, And Prosperous Imagining!
